Set Yourself Apart with SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP Certification
Certification not only prepares you for the challenges ahead but also sets you on a path for further success. By earning your SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP®) or SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP®) credential, you demonstrate that you’re invested in your career and ready to lead.
Unlike memorization-based certification credentials, SHRM certification measures an HR professional's most critical skill: the ability to apply HR principles to real-life situations. No other exam compares.
